Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.

My study technique involves a three-step process. First, I read the relevant text information I need to learn. Next, I highlight all the important information and key facts. Finally, I rewrite all the key facts and important information in my own words or draw pictures when necessary. This study technique uses three types of learning: reading/writing, visual and kinesthetic. It could also include auditory if you say the information out loud or listen to it when writing. This type of learning works for me because I find that I do not have one type of learning that works for me and that a combination of them all is both useful and strategically precise in learning and retaining information long term. This technique has worked well for me on all of the many tests I have taken throughout my education, and I honestly believe that it could work for anyone!
